mad sq eats: pizza

Last week to enjoy the Madison Square Eats booths! My tummy and taste buds are sad.

Just had the seasonal pizza from the Roberta’s booth (there it is on the middle tray). Complete with asparagus, mozzarella, lemon, garlic oil if I remember correctly. Delicious. The Beesting pizza Laura ordered is coming out is the wood fire oven in the 2nd pic. Also equally as delicious.

20120527-234224.jpgFound this new place in the Upper West Side serving growlers of beer and southern style food.  It has some of the best Mac & Cheese that I’ve tasted in the city.  The friend pickles are a favorite of mine for an appetizer.  Their Beer Mussels with Fries are shown above in the foreground and the Mac & Cheese beyond.  Half growlers of beer are available as well as you can see in the photos.  Bring your appetite.  The portions are large & satisfying.

somebody that i used to know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kinda sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believin it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know-oh-oh

But you didn’t have cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing (oh)
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
and that feels so rough

(oh)

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number (oh)
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know
Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (somebody) (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody
